Couples to mark 'Kiss Day'
Christmas season with mistletoes may not be the only time to kiss, with businesses promoting “Kiss Day” on June 14. According to ancient Christmas custom, a man and a woman who meet under a hanging mistletoe were obliged to kiss.
The day is more welcomed by those in their 20s than in their 30s, according to a research by Daks Club, a marriage consulting agency.
Of 342 singles surveyed, half of those in their 20s replied they will celebrate it “depending on the situation,” said the survey. However, about 58 percent of those in their 30s replied that there was “no need” to celebrate the day.
Less than 20 percent answered they will celebrate Kiss Day, with 17.6 percent of those in their 20s and 16.9 percent of those in their 30s.
Kiss Day gives the couples a reason to kiss, answered 37.4 percent of those who were positive about the day, followed by 25 percent who said it could be a meaningful event for couples and 19 percent who answered a kiss does not cost anything.
It is irrational to say couples would not celebrate Kiss Day because they do not love each other, as 48 percent answered Kiss Day is not the only day they kiss.
Other negative responses include “it’s tiring to celebrate every event, it takes unnecessary costs and effort” and “long distance makes it harder to celebrate.”
